I’m Not Ashamed Tells the Story of Rachel Joy Scott
‘I’m Not Ashamed’ tells the story of one of the 13 people killed at Columbine High School in Colorado on April 20, 1999. Rachel Joy Scott (Masey McLain) was the first student murdered that day when the two assailants arrived as she was having lunch outside. The events of that day are firmly etched in the minds of those who remember it, but the film’s focus is on what is most remembered about Rachel— her kindness, compassion, and devotion to God. ‘I’m Not Ashamed’ is based on Rachel’s journals, with added insight from her mother, Beth Nimmo. These journals are a hope-filled reminder that even one person can make a difference when trusting God with their life. Rachel had written in one of her journals, “I’ve always been drawn to hands. I think it’s because it’s the way we touch people. If one person could go out of their way to show compassion, it could start a chain reaction.” Her prayer, following a renewed commitment to Jesus, was for her life to touch the world through His love shining through her.
